Double-hand Poker Guidelines

Let us become versed in some different forms of poker other than texas hold’em, 7 card stud, five card draw and omaha eight-or-better. Yes, double-hand poker. Now you might be wondering that double-hand sounds a bit Chinese; yes you’re right, this game is a mixture of the Chinese game pai gow and poker
Absolutely this isn’t one of the highly popular types of poker but still broadly played. It can be enjoyed by up to 7 players. It is played with one deck of cards, with a joker. Interestingly, the Joker can only be used as an ace, or to complete a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or royal flush. The important element here to remember is apart from the customary ranking of hands we’ve an additional winning hand which is "Five Aces" (4 Aces and the Joker). Astonishingly, five aces defeats all other hand yes, even a royal flush. Each gambler is dealt seven cards. The cards are aligned to make 2 hands; a two card hand and a 5 card hand. The 5 card hand must be better or be equivalent to the 2 card hand.
After arranging the two hands, the cards are placed on the table face down. Once down, you are no longer allowed to change them. The croupier will turn over their cards and arrange his hands. Each players hand is played against the dealer’s hands. If the player take one hand and loses the other, this is known as "push" and no money is lost or won. If dealer wins the two hands then the bettor looses their wager the opposite is true if the player wins both hands. Now if the hand is a draw, the dealer wins all. After the hand is played, the next person clock-wise becomes the dealer and the following hand is dealt.
